Rocking Wednesday!

Today I was doing some clearing out and instead of throwing away an old tissue box I decided to use it to make a card. The picture on the box is of pebbles and rocks and I remembered the sentiment 'you are my rock' that I had from Create with TLC. Perfect match, so I decided to combine these 2 and make a card for Callum.

Callum really is my rock and, particularly over the last 5 years when times have been tough for me, he has always been there for me. So when I saw this sentiment I had to have it!

I used my Big Shot to cut the hearts and emboss the olive paper.
I chose the colours after seeing the colour combo challenge at Colour Throwdown- red, olive, kraft and ivory. I have also entered this into the 'die-cut' challenge at Stamping Boutique

Used in card:
sentiment from Create with TLC
papers-stampin up, papermill, dcwv.
card for heart-tissue box from Sainsburys-own brand!
Kraft card-Handy Hippo
